The club unveiled the 208-centimetre-tall ruckman late this week.

Stevenson said the big man would hopefully help the Raiders’ young brigade of players.

“We’re happy with where we are headed but hopefully he can help out some of our younger talent,” Stevenson said yesterday.

“We took it up to Albury for a fair period of the game last week, we just need someone to help us getting the ball going our way.

“We think James can help us do that.”

Kennedy’s arrival has further boosted the Raiders’ chance of springing an upset at home against Lavington today.

Lavington enters this afternoon’s clash at Birallee Park without five walk-up starters.

Matt Pendergast, Lachie Boyd, Michael Gibbons, Adam Butler and Luke Brauer will all miss through injury or unavailability.

Adam Flagg will play his first senior game for the Panthers.
